  • “Caption” allows you to add relevant caption to your picture. The caption will be displayed below the file when you choose "Special type" -> frame or thumbnail. If you choose "Special type" -> border, then the caption will only be shown when you hover over the picture.
  • The option "Alignment" provides the opportunity to put the image right, left or center of the article.To prevent text from floating around the pictures, use center alignment.
  • The option "width" allows you to determine the width of the picture. Please do not use more than 800px as it will result in skewed page.The "Special type" -> frame option does not allow you to adjust the picture size.
